My Very First Retail Client June 06, 2014 16:18
I knew that I didn't want to just sell my crumb cakes at Farmer's Markets. I had dreamed of getting my crumb cakes on the store shelves.
Deciding where to start and who to solicit to was not an easy choice. I decided to solicit to White Post Farms in Melville, NY. I contacted them and asked if I could drop off samples of my crumb cakes. They responded that it was ok to give them some samples.
When I dropped off the samples, I was so nervous! I gave a minute pitch (if that long) and I was done. I was hoping my crumb cakes would speak for themselves.
My crumb cakes were a hit and I had an order within 20 minutes! I was shocked! This couldn't be happening! They liked my crumb cakes and wanted to carry them. The feeling was so unbelievable! I felt I could accomplish anything at that moment!
I started with White Post Farms in June of 2014. I am coming up on a year with them and the experience has been amazing! I am truly grateful for the opportunity to sell my crumb cakes there!
